Tech She Can Charter

Colt DCS pledges support to Tech She Can Charter

London, England, 27 Nov 2018

London, 19th April 2018

Colt Data Centre Services today launches its channel partner programme that will further grow its business within the re-seller community.

The programme will create a mutually beneficial environment that will allow both channel partners and customers to co-exist within Colt DCS’ highly secure customer base. Through direct and indirect collaborations with the partners, Colt DCS customers will be able to add further value to their businesses, generate leads and grow revenues. Partners will also be able to leverage the services available within Colt DCS’s data centre ecosystem without having to pay a premium for it.

The launch sees Colt DCS’ kick-off an independent global partner programme. The new programme takes a tailored approach to suit the evolving needs of businesses and will focus specifically on data centre solutions.

In the lead up to the partnership programme, Colt DCS will introduce training, certifications and Marketing Development Funds (MDF) to ensure partners are well-integrated and able to work collaboratively towards generating leads that transition into building a long term pipeline for their business.

The programme will initially be available in UK before being rolled out into the wider European markets with events in Spain and Brussels in next month. Colt DCS aims to roll out the programme across regions in the US and Asia over the coming months, and over the next two years will aim to double the amount of indirect sales each year through the channel programme alone.

“The data centre industry is thriving, and we need new talent who can bring a variety of skills, experiences and background to support our business growth. One of the key barriers to getting more women into the STEM careers is down to the lack of information of what working in the sector entails, as well as the opportunity and encouragement for these individuals to thrive.”
Limor Brunner

Limor Brunner - Vice President of HR

“We are excited to have the opportunity to support Tech She Can and challenge the stereotypes of the data centre and technology industry, and work together to empower women to break into the industry,” Brunner added.

Sheridan Ash, Women in Tech leader at PwC and The Tech She Can Charter founder, said:

“Waiting until women are entering work is simply too late - to boost the number of females in technology we need to take coordinated action to start inspiring girls to consider technology careers while they are still at school.

“By working together we can reach more females at an earlier stage of their lives. We need to work harder to raise awareness about the exciting range of technology roles out there, in a sector that has the power to change the world. Technology is open to all and we need to get that message across.

“We welcome other organisations to sign up to our Charter and take action to solve this important problem."
